So instead of using overly exaggerated metaphors, I'll just say it straight: practicing yoga at 100 degrees is hard! Apparently, I didn't die but I got so dizzy and queasy in the yoga room that I decided to listen to my body and leave (even though I already took way too many breaks). Ugh, I feel so bad because leaving is so disrespectful, not only to the instructor but to the entire studio. Did I type up a whole-hearted apology email? Absolutely.
With that being said, I drove back home (looking like a tomato!) and made myself a cool, tasty, refreshing acai treat.
Maybe this is what my body needed.The acai bowl was amazing; would actually like to make myself another one! I have already took a stab at making acai bowls but they usually come out too runny. However, this recipe begged to differ; it was creamy and resembled soft-serve ice cream. I've found my new favorite treat for hot days (or post-hot yoga practices).
Have you ever tried acai before? The fruit itself is honestly quite intolerable and I cannot put a finger on the taste but all you need is some ripe bananas to naturally sweeten the berries. Yum, yum, yum. Click here for this awesome recipe.
Que the heavenly music.
Acai is known for its high antioxidant and omega-3 content and unique taste. The nutrition info below is based on using unsweetened acai and does not include the optional use of granola.
Tasted like ice cream but has 11 grams of fiber. I'm sold!
